Hi, this was a very interesting and thought provoking video.
I am directing and producing a short fiction film called The Broken Record, about a dystopian future, and I was wondering if it would be okay if some footage from this video could be included in a montage sequence in the film. Please reply to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, thank you.
